Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.71

Is everybody as HOT as I am? These high temps really need to go down some before next weekend or this MOB is going to MELT. Left the house around 10:00am today to meet with the wedding director and the temps were already up to the mid 90's...praying this heatwave will end soon. With all the high temps...have any of you been out thriftin'? I so hope some of you have, or maybe you have a thrifty makeover to share today...so let's all see what you have been doing this past week. You all already know what I have been doing...working on the WEDDING! I just stopped polishing silver, so I could write this post and get this party rolling...next I will being ironing some vintage linens that we will be using. I'm real excited that I have some of my MIL's beautiful linens to use at Haley's wedding...you see...Haley never got to meet this wonderful lady (she died six weeks after our wedding...26 years ago). Now let's take a  look at the top four LIKES from last weeks party...don't forget to visit around the vote for your favorites this week...I have been doing it and it's a lot of FUN...so give it a try.

I just took a few things to my booth and I 'bout died going in a out!
I do hope that it cools off some by the wedding. I am sure you will appear as cool as a cucumber even if it doesn't.
How lovely that your MIL's linens will dress the tables at Haley's wedding. That almost made me cry.

Lynn said...

Time sure flies. I remember when you first posted about the wedding and now it's almost here. I hope it cools down for you. One of my girlfriends told me to "remember to breathe" when my daughter's wedding was close. So much to do! I can't wait to see pics of your family's special day and of the beautiful linens. Have fun and thanks for hosting today despite your hefty "to do" list.
